Caption: Donor kidney. Surgeon removing a donor kidney in a kidney-shaped bowl from its inner plastic bag in preparation for a transplant operation. The kidney is being stored in ice to maintain its condition. Kidney transplantation is the simplest and most common organ transplant, and it has a very high success rate. It is done to replace kidneys with chronic kidney failure. Kidneys must have their fat removed, their blood vessels prepared and be flushed with perfusion fluid prior to transplantation. This view is part of image sequence M575/050-56 showing a kidney being prepared for transplantation.
